Cookery teambuilding is all the rage at the moment and no one does it better than Wigmore Street-based L’atelier des Chefs. In a light-and-airy, custom-built learning kitchen which can host up to 50 students at a time, guests can either learn to cook a pre-ordained meal under the tutelage of an experienced chef or take part in a fun menu-planning and design session. Until the end of April, bookers are also being offered a free ‘dinner in an hour’ course for two people.

Prices start from £100 per person for a tasting session and canapé receptions, but extras can be added on. See the wines.

The Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 1998 menu follows the canapés with delights like diver-caught scallops and West Mersea native oysters. Sevruga caviar and foie gras are also features. The top package comes in at £4,400 for a group.
